IE University is located in Segovia, Spain, approximately 50 miles (and a short train or bus ride) away from Madrid. IE is a private institution with ties to the IE Business School in Madrid, which is considered a leading business school around the world. Segovia is famous for its Romanesque art, stunning architecture and historic monasteries. One of these convents, Convento de Santa Cruz la Real, is home to the IE University Campus. Built in 1218 and declared a National Heritage site in 1931, IE University's convent's church now serves as the University's Aula Magna, a spectacular building fully restored to its former glory. This beautiful location comprises lecture halls, laboratories and conference rooms, where the latest technologies have been seamlessly integrated into a historical backdrop from the 15th Century.
